DEMOCRATS CAVE: Mike Pompeo CONFIRMED as Secretary of State

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.26.18

President Trump’s nominee to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State was officially confirmed Thursday; following weeks of Democratic opposition against former CIA director Mike Pompeo.

According to Fox News, the Senate voted 57-42 to officially confirm Pompeo as the nation’s top diplomat; with seven Senators who caucus with the Democratic Party bucking leadership and voting in the affirmative.

The Democrats voting “yes” included Senators Heitkamp, Joe Manchin, and Joe Donnelly.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito swore in Pompeo immediately following the highly-anticipated vote.

“He will always put the interests of America first,” the president said in a statement after Pompeo’s confirmation. “He has my trust. He has my support.”
